city, in is a tricky forecast for you. you're right on the line. we know it's going to snow. the question is, how much is it going to snow. we've got you in the 6 to 12 inch range right now. that would be the biggest storm of the year so far. northern new jersey, some big snow totals and in lesser amounts if you move south and west. don't think you're going to have to go very far to get into the north or east to get into the bigger snow totals. poughkeepsie, eastern long island, things will be significantly worse than we see in the city itself. timing there is late tomorrow and into tomorrow night. you see amounts tapering off as you head farther south and west. the idea here is that a lot of people see a foot of snow. some people say two feet of snow. maybe in a few spots in and around boston we could see three feet of snowfall out of this one. your top five snowstorms, the biggest, presidents' day in 2003. some model res saying we may beat that total in boston. not written in stone, but these are ones that everybody remembers. we stop that, that indeed will be something to

expect ed melissa le x back to you. >> we are watching gold, it's heading for a six month low. citi making some bearish comments about gold and if it's in the process of peaking new, industries suggest gold could go into hibernation for a long time. meantime, the g-20 finance ministers in moscow also weighing on the metals markets, looking to see how they will deal with currency wars and in term of the pricing of the precious metal. we also saw a lot of hedge fund managers and granted they are a snapshot of where they stood at the end of last quarter, but some notable moves in terms of gold, tsiros, pimco cutting their bets in gold. >> the citi note's interesting. they say if history is repeating itself and you had the bull market in the '70s followed by years in the '80s, we cannot look for gold to exceed 1950 in the next 20 years if it is peaking at the moment. they call it a long cycle metal. it tends to do that for a long time. would disappoint a lot of people who still see inflation as a longer term challenge. >> right and there's a surprising report from the world gold council

distinguished career as a federal prosecutor right here in new york city where she took on some major cases against wall street interests. >> that's right. >> so i think president obama's pick of mary jo white really was based on her proven track record as a senior federal prosecutor and her ability to get tough settlements from wall street and weighing that against her potential conflicts from representing certain wall street firms. i think it's a small price to pay, and the s.e.c. does have policies and procedures in place to deal with conflicts, but it shouldn't disqualify a person of mary jo white's caliber from serving as a chairwoman. >> that's a great point. >> andrew? >> ihinkou hit the nail on the head. it is sort of an optics issue, and the s.e.c. is trying to get a new reputation, after missing bernie madoff and allen stanford, they are trying to create a new s.e.c., and when you have the chairperson not being able to take part in crucial, crucial enforcement actions, as a minimum the optics are horrific. >> well, we will see what happens. thank you, gentleman, for your thoughts
